Famous for its southern hospitality and charm, Georgia is a popular destination for RVers. You have the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in the north, the Atlantic coast in the east and the sprawling metropolis of Atlanta in the heart of Georgia. Let’s look at my top five picks for RV parks, grounds, and sites in the Peach State so you can find the perfect place to get back, relax and enjoy some Deep South fun.

 

Sugar Mill Creek: Clarkesville

Enjoy the foothills of the Appalachian and the quiet scenery of Clarkesville at Sugar Mill Creek

There are two creeks that put you to sleep at the 48 fully paved and padded sites of Sugar Mill Creek. Sites come with full utility hookups. The grounds provide showers, laundry, fire rings at each site, a playground, and a three level outdoor deck for visitors to host gatherings. Sugar Mill Creek provides live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights.

Sugar Mill Creek is surrounded by miles of biking and hiking trails in National Parks and Forests as well as white water rafting and kayaking. Visit Lake Burton for watersports or some great freshwater fishing. I recommend getting to some of the local falls, Minnehaha being one of the best.

Stone Mountain Park: Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain is the home for some great history, fun and is right next to the excitement of Atlanta.

 

Stone Mountain has you covered for all of your RV park needs including full utility hookups, cable TV and Wi-Fi. Stone Mountain also provides clean showers, laundry facilities, fire rings, picnic tables and even a general store. 

You can choose between both outdoor and indoor fun at Stone Mountain Park.

Stay outside to tour the Songbird Habitat and Trail, Quarry Exhibit or take a Summit Skyride, it’s difficult to stay in Stone Mountain without seeing the Confederate Memorial Carving, the world’s largest piece of exposed granite. You can also drive in to nearby Atlanta to visit the giant Georgia Aquarium, catch some thrills at Six Flags over Georgia or tour the World of Coca Cola. 

River Vista RV Resort: Dillard

The mountains of North Georgia are renowned for their quiet beauty and beautiful foliage. Get right into the heart of north Georgia at River Vista RV Resort

Stay for a few days, or a few months, River Vista has all of your needs covered. They provide full utility hookups including digital cable and free Wi-Fi. This is on top of showers, propane fill up, laundry facilities, fitness center, clubhouse and much more. 

We like the idea of staying long term due to the amount of fun that’s within a day’s drive of River Vista including Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, the Tennessee Aquarium, the Georgia Aquarium and much more. Not to mention River Vista is on the doorstep of the Nantahala National Forest. Just check out River Vista’s area attractions page.

River’s End Campground & RV Park: Tybee Island

Savannah is known as known as the Hostess City of the South and just a few minutes of exploring Savannah shows you why.

 

River’s End RV and Campground on Tybee Island is adjacent to both Savannah and the Atlantic Coast and gives you all the amenities an RVer needs. River’s End supplies full hookups including electric, water, sewer and cable. The park itself provides laundry, showers, propane fill up, Wi-Fi, community area and even a dog park. 

You are perfectly situated to explore the old world charm of Savannah. Go fishing on the Atlantic, go kiteboarding, tour the historic civil war sites or just relax on the Tybee Pier and Pavilion. Savannah is full of fun and history, not to mention some of the best dining in the United States. We recommend Captain Mike’s for spotting dolphins, offshore or deep sea fishing. 

A Big Wheel RV Park: St. Marys

The mountains of north Georgia are nice but let’s not forget about the coastal and wetland areas of southeast Georgia like St.

Marys. 

A Big Wheel RV Park has all the amenities you need like full hookups, Wi-Fi, concrete pads and a picnic area. This is in addition to laundry facilities, showers, a private fishing pond and access to Crooked River.

There is plenty to see near A Big Wheel. Go explore the flora and fauna of Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge or guarantee yourself some great wildlife viewing at the Jacksonville Zoo. If you’re in the mood for the ocean take a daytrip to Fernandina Beach or Cumberland Island. If you’re looking for something a little less wild go take in a bluegrass show at the Woodbine Opry. 

Georgia offers a variety of sights, sounds and events to take part of, no matter where you travel to in the Peach State.
